Happens more often than you think. Loss of blood makes one anoxic, which makes one combative.

And sometimes people are simply violent and combative in nature.

Yes, but do you have a butt with a butt on it tattooed on your butt?

Huh-huh, huh-huh...

Came here to say this. Ask anybody who has ever worked as a paramedic: getting attacked by somebody you're trying to help is something that's not unheard of.

Ex-cop here, saw a cute little ER doc get her nose smashed flat by an inmate who'd been shanked and was bleeding out.

Why? He "didn't like women doctors".

I'm confused? Is the 18 year old gunshot victim the "suspect" being described or is it the shooter?

The suspect is described as being a 5-foot-9 man child of medium build who was wearing a black hoodie and blue jeans. He also had the word "face" tattooed under his right eye, say deputies.

Fixed that for em.

I've done Worker's Comp for hospitals. This is really not that unusual.

So, he got shot for a reason then?

yeah but he was only grazed by the bullet. I don't think blood loss was the issue, I think he is just a douche. One could see why he got shot at in the first place.

Ahem. A properly constructed multiple-choice headline should leave open the possibility that all of the above occurred.

More of THIS with the ER violence. I worked a couple of summers in a hospital in the ER/triage. Guy must have been a real dong to actually have charges thrown at him. We would see some pretty awful stuff and the EMTs always had crazy stories about violent family members that were punching them while they were giving the dude CPR. Just sad ignorance. I also recall hearing on more than one occasion about the whole block of the ghetto assembling after a local shooting and blocking off the street so the EMTs couldn't enter and shouting the usual, "stay the fark outta my hood" nonsense. It would piss me off to see some prisoner in, wasting everyone's time, because he complained of "chest pains" (aka I lost my TV bid for the day) and go watch cable for a few hours in the hospital. No ailment, just wanted to clog up the farking system because he was bored. There are some senior members of the community that can be just as bad: laying there on a gurney moaning really loud because they want attention and scheduling xrays/ct/diagnostics because they are lonesome or their favorite transporter is working that day. Then I would really start to question the whole system when a little girl came in with a broken arm and would have to wait because Jamal and Lysol had shot each other again and the docs all had to stand around in there stabilizing those absolute losers for 4 hrs instead of a little girl that had an honest accident. Then there was my last day of work, when a city bus literally flipped on its side and all of the local color started climbing INTO the bus so they could file lawsuits. I ended up working 4 hrs overtime thanks to those dongs and who knows how many patients had to wait in real pain until the sheriffs sorted it out. Just ridiculous mentality sometimes. People in extreme pain are often agitated and it sucks when the system fails them but far too few seem to think outside of the box of "me" as to whether bringing a child to the ER for a sniffle so you can get a work pass ever lessens the service of others. Rainy days were the worst. As soon as water touches the ground, people wreck. As you can all probably tell I found other employment that didn't frustrate me so much. My csb/rant for the day.

Mrs bearcats is almost finished with nursing school and is seriously considering the ER. The hospital she'd be working for is very urban and the "go to" in the city for gunshots, stab wounds, etc.

She's tough and can handle herself, but I really hope some douche doesn't try to pull this shiat on her.

This is why I work in the lab; so I can help people without actually having to interact with them.

You have a future writing contracts with that solid brick of text.

Story contains gunshot and a knife being drawn but throwing the punch was not an act of intentional violence wtf lol
 
2012-10-17 11:59:41 AM
I actually have the word "arm" tattooed on my face just to throw people off.

If you are looking for my "face" tattoo, that would be on my right ring finger.
